Morning and hello! Sitting here fĂ­nally by the PC and write this post up. Had some kind of virus in the machine and it have taken me a week to get it back on track again.

Being in a not so good mood because of the PC going down, I feel a bit better now seeing the Lovely Creations that my team have created. We are a bit short staffed this week, but we should soon be back to our normal selfs again. With this post do we also have to give a fond Farewell to our DT Sam who are leaving the team due to family comitments. We all wish you well and hope to see you around whenever you have the time to join us for a challenge or two.

Enjoy the sunshine and some relaxing crafting time!
